I see it now.

I really hope this waterpark shit is just the park leading everyone on. Not encouraged about that, at this point.

Ok
After 2nd teaser I’m really thinking water park addition. They’re obviously going for some speed record though, right?

That's not the vibe I'm getting. Judging by the stop watches they're testing how fast he's accelerating and using the slide is a less obvious example of this rather than using V2.

My guess is they're hinting at X amount of speed in 2 seconds or less.

Those S&S Air Launch coasters reach full speed in 1.8 seconds.

Does any roller coaster currently go 0-100 mph in less than 2 seconds?

Who said anything about 100MPH?

I don't know any Coasters that fast that I can think of off the top of my head, Kingda Ka is faster than Top Thrill Dragster both in top speed and acceleration but still not by much. It goes from 0 mph - 128 mph in 3.5s.

Edit: Formula Rossa is even faster than that with an acceleration 0 mph - 149.1 mph in 4s.

Hm, I wasn't actually familiar with that one.

The reason I brought up the 0-100 mph, is because I'm trying to think what record could be broken if this is indeed a Roller Coaster and that is a record spinning in the background.

I'm waiting for this all to be "too good" to be true, and they add Buzzy Bees back to that park. I kind of miss the looks of that ride. Even if It's a kiddie ride, I used to like that ride a lot. I probably would ride it again if they bring it back, but I would either go early or late to avoid the kids.

I'm starting to get a full throttle short circuit coaster vibe here. Part of me thinks that's exciting and part of me hates the idea. If we were getting a lunched I would love to have something compact like a Mack.

I can dream. :roll:

I've never been on Full Throttle, but it looks decent from all the videos I've seen on youtube. I wouldn't mind something similar.

The teaser seemed to have an emphasis on speed. It showed the guy going down the slide in 2 seconds and said "you can do better" that doesn't really make sense as a watercoaster or any other kind of waterslide wouldn't go faster than that. Also, I went back into the ride naming survey, and it kept asking about names of rides with fast acceleration and large inversions. Call me crazy, but could we be seeing the Dodonpa of the United States?

Um. No. Just, no. People are looking WAY to much into these teasers. The Justice league towel has nothing to do with anything. They just grabbed a towel from the gift shop as a prop. And the rainbow? Really? Its part of the stock footage.

I'm looking way too far into it? Says the guy who put in the effort to find the stock footage Six Flags used. :lol:
It just so happened to be Justice League common colors and considering how much SF loves DC ride names right now it made sense to point out.

I did the name survey yesterday. There were several marketing questions about the name 'Maxx Force' and questions about names in categories like: fastest acceleration, fastest inversion, etc. Very detailed. Looks like the big clue in the new teaser is 2 seconds. I'm down with the vinyl record spinning in the background theory too, seems conspicuous when any background could have been used.

Ehh. Wasn't that hard. Just googled "Spinning record stock footage" took less than two minutes. I wasn't singling you out perse. I just find it hilarious how deep people get. Soon someone will count the checkers on the guy's shorts and claim they found a code telling them the name of the ride. :lol:

Well.... if we get a launched coaster next year, at least we know for a fact based on California's Great America that a Raptor could fit in Buccaneer Battles plot of land when the time comes, lol
